The Forgotten Solider Program http://www.theforgottensoldierprogram.org/home.html has helped over 17,000 veterans and their families in nine years by giving them hope through support services and assuring that no one is forgotten. The organization does this by focusing on the needs of veterans and their families, and offering a range of services including counseling, therapy, nutrition, biofeedback and holistic healing practices.
The Gold County Chaplaincy http://www.goldcountrychaplaincy.com/ provides spiritual, emotional and mental support in times of need or crisis to our military, veterans and their families and the community. The recent Gold Country Veteran Stand Down served over 300 veterans – most of whom were homeless. They received free medical, dental, vision care and access to many other resources.
Red, White & Blue Dance organizer, Sheila Lee, produced the first dance six years ago to honor American Armed Forces, Veterans and their families, and is committed to raising funds for veteran’s services. “We will be displaying photos of those who are serving or have served on a Wall of Honor,” said Lee. Contact Lee at 916-660-2059 if you have photos that you’d like to share or would like to support the dance.
Lee is a member of Soroptimist International of Loomis Basin https://soroptimistloomis.com/, and the club is helping with the event. Soroptimist (soroptimist.org) is an international volunteer service organization for women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.
